Temple Square (East 1 District)


Sister Shalora Marotz

I'm bad at thinking of titles

This week has been pretty good. On Sunday we were able to go to the deaf ward in Salt Lake City. It was really interesting. It wasn't a big Ward, but they were all welcoming and loving people. Not everyone in the ward was deaf, but everyone used and understood ASL. The Sisters had a great time watching the proceedings, and luckily there was a good interpreter to help the sisters who did not understand. A few people got up to bear their testimonies. It was a great spiritual experience. Later, I got to try out the Gospel Living App. For those who haven't tried it, there are ways to set goals and reminders to work on new things. There are also inspirational messages to help remind us of the Savior and the ways we can better follow him. If you have time I would recommend all people look at it.

We also had exchanges this week. On Wednesday with our Zone Leaders and on Thursday with members of our district. I was with Sister Roy from Hawaii. She is one of my zone leaders and this transfer is her last. She is really sweet and willing to talk to all people. I learned a lot from her about looking for the best in people. It is really important to always see everyone as a child of God. The next day was exchanges with our district. Sister Marotz needs to exchange with all the sisters, so that means I have to as well. She is starting with the trainees, so I was with Sister Deng from China. I enjoyed our day as well. She is willing to work hard and wants to do her best to help her trainee feel loved and welcomed. Our next exchnages won't be until next week. It will be a good time I'm sure.

I guess not that much happened this week. I still had plenty of time to missionary work. Our schedules are really busy with less people on square, and it is hard to find the time to get on the computers. We still try our best to share the gospel everyday. Today is our Zone Activity and we went to one of the homes of our presidency. The Littlefields are so nice to let us into their home and feed us some delicious breakfast food. We are almost halfway through the transfer now. More news to come, talk to you all next week.
